BREAKING: Georgia flips 2023 prospect Raymond Cottrell
Georgia added its seventh pledge of the 2023 recruiting cycle when 4-star wide receiver Raymond Cottrell flipped his commitment from Florida to Georgia on Thursday morning.
Cottrell made the announcement known via his Twitter.
He is currently the nation’s No. 88 overall player, No. 12 wide receiver and No. 18 in Florida, per the 247Sports Composite.
The 6-foot-2, 205-pound wideout visited Athens in June and competed in a scavenger hunt that was put on by the Georgia coaching staff. Bulldog coaches Scott Cochran and Cortez Hankton were the lead recruiters for Cottrell, per his 247Sports profile.
Cottrell has racked up 63 receptions for 985 yards and eight touchdowns in his junior campaign. He’s also shown that he can be a dual-threat, rushing for 311 yards on 55 attempts with seven touchdowns. Cottrell has also taken some snaps at quarterback this year, completing 9-of-10 passes for 132 yards and two scores. His versatility is a big reason why Georgia has extended him a scholarship offer.
He also holds offers from several other Power 5 schools, including Florida State, Arkansas, Auburn, Alabama, Notre Dame and Miami, among others.
The Bulldogs currently have the No. 2 class in the 2023 recruiting cycle. He joins cornerback Marcus Washington, offensive tackle Bo Hughley, tight end Pearce Spurlin, wide receiver Daquayvious Sorey, cornerback Kayin Lee and defensive lineman Seven Cloud.
